Storyline

The ChubbChubbs introduces the alien inhabitants of the Planet Glorf, including Meeper, its earnest but oh so awkward hero, a singing Diva, the Zyzaks, 20 foot-tall red-eyed bullies, and the ChubbChubbs. In this debut short, Meeper valiantly tries to warn the patrons of the Ale-E-Inn, an intergalactic watering hole with its own constellation of stars, of impending danger only to find himself face to face with the toughest creatures in the universe.

7 December 2002 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

After watching this short movie on the Men In Black 2 DVD, it should be made into a feature length movie. Not only was I killing myself laughing but my grandson was having fits of laughter. 6 minutes is no where near enough of this movie. Please make a feature length movie people. Steve
